After Leah (Sanaa Lathan) breaks up with her boyfriend ((Morris Chestnut), she meets the man of her dreams (Michael Ely) who seems perfect in every way. Is there such a thing as too perfect? “The Perfect Guy” Facebook page
What to Watch For: Michael Ealy and Sanaa Lathan believe so much in this film that they served as executive producers.
Word on the Street: Most of the film was shot at night and most of the time used only available light.
My Take: Sanaa Lathan is in one of my favorite movies, “Love & Basketball.”
“The Visit” (2015)
A single mom (Kathryn Hahn) sends her two young children (Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould) to visit their grandparents (Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie). Something very wrong is going on in the house, and their grandparents are acting strangely. “The Visit” Website
What to Watch For: M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable) is the writer/director of the film.
Word on the Street: Shyamalan went low budget on this film to give himself more control over all aspects of the movie.
My Take: After a few duds, I hope that M. Night Shyamalan is back in form with this film.
“Steak (R)evolution” (2014)
Documentary about the search for the best steak in the world.
What to Watch For: The film goes to France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, UK,USA, Canada, Japan, Argentina, Brazil to find out what makes a great steak. “Steak (R)evolution” Website
Word on the Street: Foodies are loving this film.
My Take: I have never met a steak that I didn’t like.
